Fabio Coentrao, on his Way to Italy?

Fabio Coentrao, on his Way to Italy?

Fabio Coentrao

The deadline day at Real Madrid is always exciting. Last year, Los Blancos were negotiating to get David de Gea on board and sell Keylor Navas to Manchester United but the paperwork didn’t arrive on time. This year, the day is quieter but there are still some issues that we’ll know in the next few hours.

For instance, one of the players who don’t know his future is Fabio Coentrao. The Portuguese left back is still injured and he hasn’t played a minute in the start of the season. On top of that, he’s not supposed to come back until October and Coentrao is well known for Real Madrid supporters for being injured half of the season.

Zinedine Zidane is not very fond of the Portuguese player. Fabio Coentrao could be a problem in the squad eventually and if the club finds a suitable team for the left back, he could leave Madrid today.

In the last hours, Inter Milan have shown interest in the player. The ‘neroazzurri’ are looking for a left back and Coentrao could be the option. However, Matteo Darmian, currently in Manchester United, is the other option for Frank de Boer side.

There are really good relationships between Real Madrid and Inter Milan and both clubs could reach a last-minute agreement for Fabio Coentrao. It could be either an on loan deal or a transfer deal. Last year, Coentrao played on loan at Monaco, where he only appeared in 15 games in the French League One, scoring 3 goals. Again, he suffered several injuries and couldn’t play at his best.

Real Madrid signed Fabio Coentrao back in 2011 from Benfica paying a high transfer fee of €30M. He was always critized by the Real Madrid fans and he was always Marcelo’s replacement. However, he played some important games in the Champions League with some good performances.
